Thought I should add this here.
This is Hakalugi post below.
I was at a store downtown and in the back talking with the owner
when the girl from the counter out front came back and said there
was a guy that wanted to talk to me, The plate on my car is Tikiskp.
He was with this group and wanted to talk about lighting.
Good luck Grass skirt!!!!!
Hope some of the info here can help as well.
Just saw where the FOM met with Liz Lessner on this bar, Well that means they won't work with me now
that's for sure.
Name:The Grass Skirt
Street:105 N. Grant Street
Opening Spring 2012
From article here:
The Grass Skirt seeks to revive the fire-and-tiki kitsch of tiki bars of yore with Polynesian fare and flair at 105 N. Grant Street in spring 2012. “We’re working on a volcano,” Lessner said. “We can’t promise it yet because it may not work.”
Also part of the South Pacific plans — steaming drinks, a waterfall, Spam, pineapples and maraschino cherries. “We all grew up loving the Kahiki,” she said of the once-popular Columbus restaurant that lives on as a frozen food brand. “We try to find niches. Our restaurant group goes for a fun vibe.” The venture includes the rest of the Columbus Food League team — Carmen Owens, Amy Brennick, Tim Lessner and Harold LaRue. One appeal of the old MadLab Theater and Gallery space was that it was a high-ceiling and open space — giving the business brain trust the freedom to be more creative, including not just the Polynesian decor but the ability to build the kitchen from scratch.
